How to start a Pin up wardrobe, the basics!

Hi everybody!

Looking vintage or Pin Up everyday looks like an impossible task, and you must think I have a huge collection of clothing. Well, I do, but you don’t nearly need as much as I have to look like a Pin Up girl everyday. (Pssst… Don’t tell my boyfriend!!) So what are the must-have items for starting a Pin Up wardrobe and style?

I would go for items that you can combine with one another, first some basics. 

High waisted jeans or trousers.

These are absolutely ideal. When it is cold outside, or you just don’t feel like wearing a dress or a skirt today, paired with a nice top, blouse or shirt, it will make you look like a Rosie the Riveter! Collectif has some nice ones!

Having a tight fitted beautiful pencil skirt is a Pin Up musthave! Go for a beautiful black one or a red one, those are colors that you can combine a lot! These are as well by Collectif!

Circle skirts


If you are not a big fan of the pencil skirt, go for the Circle skirt. If you feel a bit aware of your curves and want to cover them up a bit, the circle skirt is the way to go. They are beautiful to combine with a petticoat and are easy to combine with some pretty stockings and a nice top.

Pretty tops and shirts.

These don’t have to be expensive at all, like most clothing I wear. Shirts with stripes, polkadots, stars etc. work great! I personally LOVE the Dolores tops by Collectif.

A pretty dress to your liking.


Go for a pretty dress that you fall in love with and know you will wear a lot, that is suitable for day and night. Like my absolute favorite Heidi Dress by Pinup Girl Clothing or my Hell Bunny Cordelia Dress.



Go for a color of petticoat that matches most of your dresses and skirts. I suggest the black and white petticoat by Hell Bunny that is good quality and not too expensive!

I hope this has given you a bit of inspiration where to start with your style. Oh and while you are here, check out my article about Pin Up Accessories. They can really make your outfit!
